The first polish today is from Sally Hansen's Xtreme Wear line, # 230 'Pep-Plum'. The formula is great, application was very smooth and even. The picture is 2 coats. In the last picture I have a side by side comparison of this polish and the Posh Plum from Monday's post. If you remember I said they are very similar in color, Posh had a subtle shimmer finish and this one a flat, glossy finish.
Polish number two is Sally Hansen Hard as Nails # 770 'Rock Bottom'. Now as a rule, I love the formula on SH's Hard as Nails line. Although it is their least expensive polish (usually sells for $1.99) all but 2 of this line in my collection are flawless in application. This, is not one of them. This polish makes you work for a smooth, even application. However, the deep royal purple color with a gorgeous shimmer finish is, in my opinion, worth the extra effort. It is pictured here with 2 coats. .
Next up is #978 from Sinful Colors, 'Amethyst'. This is what I would call a perfect grape purple. The formula was thin and even, great application and perfect opacity in one coat.
You can see it darkens a bit depending on the lighting
Last but not least is # 1183 'Enchanted', also from Sinful Colors. This is a deep, rich, dark purple and I must admit, I'm in love. The formula is a little on the thin side, but that didn't stop it from being perfectly opaque in one coat. Also, that thinness which is characteristic of Sinful Colors is what drew me to the brand in the first place, since it makes them excellent candidates for use in water marbling.
That's it, my purple swatches are complete! Which was your favorite from today? Have a favorite you'd like to recommend? Talk to me in the comments! And don't forget that Friday I will feature a nail art using at least 3 of the colors swatched today and Monday! Thanks for reading and I'll see you next time!
